Headington, Cowley and Iffley Road area the focus for continuing streetlighting improvement work

Oxfordshire County Council’s £3.8m programme to improve 3,200 streetlights in the county continues in the Headington, Cowley and Iffley Road areas of Oxford from August 7.

The streetlights are being replaced with new steel columns and higher quality LED light solution which also reduces energy and future on-going maintenance requirements.

The streets where work will take place from August 7 are Northfield Road, Pitts Road, Spooner Close, Tile House Close, Toot Hill Butts, Trafford Road, William Kimber Crescent, York Road, Cumberland Road, Essex Street, Glanville Road, Golden Road, Hertford Street, Milton Road, Morris Crescent, Shelley Road, Silver Road, Argyle Street, Bedford Street, Cavell Road, Chester Street, Daubeny Road, Fairacres Road, Jackdaw Lane.

The finance for the scheme as a whole comes from a £2.8m central Government grant and £1m of Oxfordshire County Council capital funding.
